Description

In the land of Terra Mystica dwell 14 different peoples in seven landscapes and each group is bound to its own home environment so to develop and grow they must terraform neighboring landscapes into their home environments in competition with the other groups.
Terra Mystica is a game with very little luck that rewards strategic planning. Each player governs one of the 14 groups. With subtlety and craft the player must attempt to rule as great an area as possible and to develop that group's skills. There are also four religious cults in which you can progress. To do all that each group has special skills and abilities. Taking turns the players execute their actions on the resources they have at their disposal. Different buildings allow players to develop different resources. Dwellings allow for more workers. Trading houses allow players to make money. Strongholds unlock a group's special ability and temples allow you to develop religion and your terraforming and seafaring skills. Buildings can be upgraded: Dwellings can be developed into trading houses; trading houses can be developed into strongholds or temples; one temple can be upgraded to become a sanctuary.
Each group must also develop its terraforming skill and its skill with boats to use the rivers. The groups in question along with their home landscape are: Desert (Fakirs Nomads) Plains (Halflings Cultists) Swamp (Alchemists Darklings) Lake (Mermaids Swarmlings) Forest (Witches Auren) Mountain (Dwarves Engineers) Solitude (Giants Chaos Magicians) Proximity to other groups is a double-edged sword in Terra Mystica. Being close to other groups gives you extra power but it also means that expanding is more difficult...

Thank you

Every Friday afternoon my friend would bring his copy of Terra Mystica over and some other mates would drop by and we would nerd out with pizza and gaming. I recently moved interstate and missed those great times we had. I just had to get myself a copy and introduce it to some new friends and teach them what real boardgaming was about. It is a lil on the expensive side but the enjoyment I have had from this game easily makes up for it. Probably my favorite board game of all time. The rules may seem quite overwhelming at first but after a play through most people tend to have a good understanding of how it works. What I love most about this game is how much stuff there is to keep track of that it can sometimes leave you stumped on what would be the most effective move to take.
